How People Count Cash

This is an extraordinary piece of comparative ethnography I'd seen some time ago and put out on Twitter the other day:


How People Count Cash? - Funny home videos are a click away

The simple rote-techniques of everyday life are some of the most deeply entrenched cultural differences we exhibit, and they're often shocking in their variety and alienness if we pause to observe them.  Kudos to whoever assembled this gem.  If anyone can point me to a cross-cultural video study of gait/walk, I'd very much appreciate it.

  1. Hi, constantly i used to check weblog pists here in the early hours in the daylight, since
    i enjoy to gain knowledge of more and more.

  2. You really make it appear so easy together
    with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually something which I think I’d never
    understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m having a look ahead to your next put up, I will attempt to get the hang of it!

  3. This design iis steller! You certainly knoiw how to keep
    a reader amused. Betweden your wit and your videos, I was
    almost moved to start mmy own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, howw yyou presented it. Too cool!

  4. You actually make it appear so easdy together with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something which I feel I’d never understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me.

    I’m looking forwward to your subsequent put up, I’ll try
    too get the cling of it!

  5. Hey there would you mind letting me know which
    web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely diferent internet browswrs and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at
    a fair price? Thank you, I apprehiate it!
